Love it. Wish the audio inserts were replaceable.

I paid about 3x the price listed here 2 years ago and don't regret it at all. The helmet and liner has kept my head at a comfortable temp in various warmer and colder weather conditions. I like the snug fit--I don't want a loose helmet if I happen to misjudge my edge or landing and suddenly eat ice (or rocks and trees given the abominable coverage this year). The quality of audio sound is good, loud enough for me to tune out others in the lines or lift chairs. It's also very comfortable to wear; I can have it on all day with no pressure points, sweaty areas or itchy irritations.

4 stars because my left ear speaker stopped working after 1 season and I can't find a Lenox replacement liner!!! Tried the Cordova winter liner, but that's too big; the cord for the audio system only has pause and volume control, no mic, so no skipping songs without digging out my device from my pockets. (I replaced the cord with one with a mic and my smart watch now controls the music function.)

The label in my helmet says, "Complies with CPSC, ASTM F 2040, EN 1077 helmets for alpine skiers and snowboarders..." So I think the other comment complaining this helmet is inadequate for skiing is either in error or owns a different model helmet.

Even with the flaws and malfunctions, I still prefer this helmet to others available. It's just that comfortable.
